In an interview with CNET's Brooke Chrothers, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang confirmed that the company has a long CPU strategy, but sans x86.
“Our CPU strategy is ARM,” said Huang. "ARM is the fastest growing processor architecture in the world today. ARM supports Android best. And Android is the fastest growing OS in the world today."
He stressed that Nvidia’s dual-core Tegra 2 chips are available in two versions, geared towards mobile phones and tablets, adding that both versions are currently being designed into products.
Huang also commented Nvidia’s licensing dispute with Intel. He concluded that Nvidia has been out of the chipset business for over a year and that the damage has already been done.
“If this got resolved we're not expecting to ramp back up the thousand engineers that we had working on chipsets," he said.
